Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : clamav (MDKSA-2006:067)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 21202


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Damian Put discovered an integer overflow in the PE header parser in ClamAV that could be exploited if the ArchiveMaxFileSize option was disabled (CVE-2006-1614).

Format strings in the logging code could possibly lead to the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2006-1615).

David Luyer found that ClamAV could be tricked into an invalid memory access in the cli_bitset_set() function, which could lead to a Denial of Service (CVE-2006-1630).

This update provides ClamAV 0.88.1 which corrects this issue and also fixes some other bugs.


Update the affected packages.
